1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon roasted sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (or to taste - optional)
4 (5 oz) fresh salmon steaks (each about 3/4 inch thick)
8 cups mixed baby salad greens (mesclun- well washed and dried)

Combine honey, soy sauce, oil and red pepper (if desired).  Remove 2 tablespoons of mixture to brush on fish.  Set aside remaining mixture to use as salad dressing.
Home made strawberry
pie for dessert - yum!

Heat grill to medium (gas or coals).  Grease grill rack or spritz with cooking spray.

When ready to cook, rinse fish under tepid running water.  Drain.  Pat dry with paper towels. 

Brush one side of fish with reserved 2 tablespoons honey mixture.   Place brushed side down on grill.  Brush top of fish with remaining mixture.

Grill, covered, until fish flakes easily - about 6 minutes.

To Serve
Pile greens and tomatoes on serving dishes.  
Slice hot, grilled fish on the diagonal and arrange on greens.  
Drizzle reserved dressing over all.
